How much is too much for a boiling point indicator?
Water temperatures vary widely from hot to cold, with the colder parts of the world having higher boiling points.
This article uses the global average for boiling point temperatures to compare temperatures in different countries, but the same principles apply to boiling point measurements across the world.
The boiling point is the point at which the boiling point of water drops below its freezing point, and this is when it begins to solidify and begin to boil.
To find out how hot it is in different parts of Australia, we calculated the temperature difference between the boiling and the coldest parts of our country.
If the boiling points of two water samples are different, it means that the boiling temperature in one sample is higher than the boiling value in the other.
We have also included the average temperatures in Australia for each of the nine main types of water in Australia.
The average temperatures are based on the temperature measured from the surface of the water at a depth of about 30cm.
